I’d note that Jackie Wattles is one of CNN’s space reporters (the other is Rachel Crane, who I met at last year’s launch, and who just received a space journalism award in February from the Commercial Space Federation, a few weeks after giving birth).
While it does put the Democrats in a logical bind, it may be, though, as the article points out, that he’s being too clever by half:
The plan would put thousands of immigrants in cities that are not only welcoming to them, but also more likely to rebuff federal officials carrying out deportation orders. Many of these locations have more resources to help immigrants make their legal cases to stay in the United States than smaller cities, with some of the nation’s biggest immigration advocacy groups based in places like San Francisco, New York City and Chicago.
Well, that could be an oopsie.

Spartacus says that moving illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities “makes us less safe.” Didn’t he get the memo? These are the most wonderful people in the world.

Yes, Democrats have no interest in illegal aliens, other than as a route to power. Which makes the irony of them declaring that Trump is using them as “political pawns” exceedingly rich.
Well, duh. He was an incompetent boob. As I’ve long said, that case needed a seasoned prosecutor with RICO experience, not an amiable “distinguished” federal judge. While I can easily believe that Hillary was a bitch to her former lover, I remain skeptical that Vince Foster murdered Vince Foster; he was convicted without a proper trial or investigation.
Per one of the comments, one of the many reasons they’re squealing like the stuck pigs that they are is that sending the newcomers to blue cities and states defeats the purpose of importing large numbers of new Democrat voters. Obama always flooded the red states with them.
I’m not sure I’d characterize the investigation as “failed,” though. It has (so far) accomplished what it was supposed to: Cover up the wrongdoing of 2016 (and before) and cripple the Trump presidency. Though the former is starting to unravel, I hope.
